ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Want to save money on your homeowners insurance?  One phone call might do it.        

The lower rating means fire insurance rates for commercial property could drop by as much as 3% in the city.     

Residential and commercial properties in the county could drop by as much as 10%.  The county is sending a notice to property owners encouraging them to call their insurance companies and tell them about the new ratings.

"We thought it was important to get the 4,600 property owners in the unincorporated area, both residential and commercial, the ability to contact their agent and have the proof in their hand to help them get those discounts," said County Commission Chairman Jeff Sinyard. "We're very excited about what the fire department's done and we're very excited about our folks saving some money."

Rates for homeowners in the city won't change.
